Royal Army Dental Corps Centenary

100 Years of British Military Dental Surgery

The Royal Army Dental Corps (RADC) is a specialist corps in the British Army that provides dental care services to its personnel and their families in war and in peace. The Corps is part of the Army Medical Services (AMS) and celebrates it 100th birthday in January 2021.

To mark this centenary BFPS, in conjunction with Headquarters RADC, is publishing a commemorative cover to be issued on the 4th of January 2021.


Various historical images and the Corps cap badge are mounted over the Corps’ colours of green, red and blue. A bespoke Royal Mail Smiler® stamp, bearing the Corps centenary logo will be cancelled by the BFPS special handstamp, numbered 3233. The centre of which carries the silhouette of the Corps’ cap badge.

The standard edition will cost £9 whilst a numbered limited edition, signed by the Chief Dental Officer (Army), will cost £18. A very limited quantity of the bespoke Smiler® stamps used on these covers will be available to order in full sheets (of 20) at £38 and half sheets (of 10) at £20.

All covers include an information insert and will be presented in a protective cellophane sleeve making a very collectable souvenir of the RADC’s Centenary.
